Butterfly Valley (Valley of Butterflies)
A brilliant place to go and see. Especially in the high season as you not only get to see the amazing wildlife (there is much more there than just the butterflies!) It is so cool down there in the shade! It's just a shame we lost our transport for an hour after we emerged at the far end and got a litte lost!!!!!
What can I say we stayed here last year and me the wife and daughter loved it best place we have stayed in pefkos and it was the 3rd time we have stayed in pefkos:)
Our son is 6 and his holidays so far read - Isles of Scilly, Lake District, France (x2) and Scotland. this year (17th July) Rhodes and Pefkos to be precise....cannot wait and it will be his first time on a plane sun sun sun here we come!!!!!!!!
The Archaeological Museum of Rhodes is far better than many have suggested. It houses a marvelous collection of pieces, sculptures, vases, reliefs, from the entire history of the island, reflecting the history of Greece itself. The old hospital of the Knights of St. John, restored now to some interest of its own, makes for the perfect setting for the archaeological exhibitions. They are set up chronologically, for the most part, and afford an excellent sense of the various periods in classic Greek history. Worth taking a day out of any schedule to visit and learn.
I was supposed to go to Portugal on holiday but my flight was cancelled at the last minute due to the ash cloud....I was gutted. My mate and I went to the nearest Travel Agents and told them, leaving tomorrow, from Edinburgh or Glasgow, must cheapness what can you get us? The agent said we can get you Pefkos, Greece, I was like ...where??? All I can say is what a fabulous place. Stayed at the Pekos Beach Hotel. Great people, great food and great weather. I will defo be back.
Went with ym family last year, best holiday ever. very friendly locals, great food, and I recommend the boat trips to more secluded coves.
1 week to go and back to pefkos on hols. Can't wait. Been going now for 3 years and we dont even think about booking for newhere else. We love it there.
Worked there many yrs ago, had a fantastic time. If young, not allot of nightlife, suits families.
We went to Pefkos last year after falling in love with Rhodes on a days cruise stop over the previous year. To 'Honest Ben' - Hire a car and take the road to Falaraki- about half an hour along the road there is a sign to the right saying 'three lovely beaches'. This leads you to three separate coves, each unique and interesting - with a great taverna on each. One in particular has several rock pools you have to walk across (deep enough to sit in to cool down) to the edge of the pools where ther are steps into cold , deep. Wonderful, quiet,and idyllic.
I'm so excited, I have just booked one week in July in Pefkos...after reading on the positive comments....
I have been to Rhodes before and loved it....first time back in 14 years!!!
